long, narrow blade allows for an easier “catch” and an easier water exit for a gradual power rise.
By measuring the immersed blade area, you would yield a level of effort. Facing the wind, the return phase is also facilitated. It will be used for surfing and for its acceleration.
It promotes the “catch” entry in the water, but too pronounced you can be penalized during the exit phase.
BLADE SHAFT CONNECTION
To ensure a consistent flex (1), with no hard point on the entire length of the paddle, the blade has to fit inside the shaft (2).
Another advantage of this connection is the absence of external joint line that could damage the rail of the board (3).
The technologies and materials chosen for the construction of the paddles bring two choices for your shaft rigidity, from the more flexible and tolerant to the more rigid and nervous.
The non-skid finish is a “soft touch” varnish that makes the paddle non slippery when wet.
This allows the rider to focus on paddling instead of wasting energy in an effort to stop the paddle from slipping. The grip is especially strong when the paddle is wet.
Allows the blade to be ideally positioned in the water, vertical when the power is at its maximum.
All our paddles incorporate in its blade construction an ABS edge whose purpose is threefold.
It protects the blade, participates in its structure and sealing, and is less aggressive to the rails of the boards.
V Double concave
The V DOUBLE CONCAVE offers a stronger V shape which is emphasized by the lateral concaves. This shape brings even more stability to the paddle without increasing the volume of the blade.
PEAK 100% CARBON Vario
The PEAK paddles are designed for surfing.
Their round but slender outline makes them very easy to handle and only requires low stroke power. They are well suited to medium and high paddling frequency, which is ideal for take-off.
The PEAK have an optimized amount of spoon and angle in the blade to achieve a paddle which is super easy to get in and out of the water in any circumstances.
Since 2016, some new blade shapes have been introduced in the CARBON HYBRID & FULL CARBON ranges. They feature a V DOUBLE CONCAVE section shape which enhances significantly the lateral stability while the blade is in the water. Benefitting from a better support, the stroke is easier and fatigue is reduced. The shaft of the PEAK paddles is designed for the best compromise of flex, hand grip and ease of paddling.
Easy to use, the PEAK paddles are available in different constructions. They are therefore well suited to all-around practice but will also satisfy the best surfers with the feather weight achieved using the 100% carbon constructions.
